TL/DR; The Revo Slim is win! (Unless you are a girth person)
Prostate play is something every male should try because it can be so extremely pleasurable. And earlier I'd shared my experiences with one of the best automatic rotating prostate massage toys on the market at the time. The Nexus Revo 2 Stealth. And today I can compare the two.
**So what is the Nexus Revo Slim?**
The Revo Slim is the latest model in a line of best selling award winning luxurious and expensive fully rechargeable vibrating medical grade silicone-coated automatic rotating-head prostate and perineum massagers created by Nexus. *breathe*
Once it's in place, it'll just do it's thing by itself.
And if it all looks and sounds somewhat neato (and it is) read on.
**Quality and 100% submersible:**
First thing that struck me was just how tiny this toy is in my hand compared to the previous models. The pictures and videos just don't do it justice. Even though the insertable length hasn't changed, this toy looks so petite! It is completely covered in soft medical grade silicone except for the small charger plate on the bottom of the base. And it just feels really well-made. It's much closer to a rubbing finger than anything mechanical that I know of, besides maybe the Nexus Sparta. And the slimmer shaft easily slid just to the right place for me with that sudden weirdly pleasurable 'need to pee' feeling. And it stays in surprisingly well too! Even while walking. Compared to the much larger based Revo 2, the new Revo Slim easily wins the *getting a drink* challenge. And I am pretty confident that with tight underwear and pants, you can take your dog out for a walk with it, too. With the vibrations deactivated and rotation on, the toy is virtually inaudible. At least to me.
Unlike the Revo models before it, the Slim is completely waterproof and 100% submersible so you can enjoy it in the shower or Jacuzzi, and it's easy to clean. And just the feel of the toy in my hand leaves a really solid impression.
**Multi Directional Rotation:**
The main feature of the Revo line is undoubtedly the targeted automatic prostate milking sensation provided by the rotation of the head on the shaft of the toy. And this time around, the rotation motor is even more quiet. It's near impossible to hear when in use. Even in a completely silent room. With only the milking sensation over my prostate revealing what setting it is on. Really well done!
The Slim added multi directional rotation. And while this new feature isn't quite as interesting as I'd hoped it could be the way it's implemented now, it can feel really nice to switch directions every once in a while. You can absolutely feel your prostate being approached from another direction, touching different spots with different forces. Win!
Sadly though, Nexus opted not to add any additional auto-mode, where it changes the rotation direction periodically or rhythmically. This really seems like a missed opportunity. It might also potentially have doubled the prostate milking speed without the motor having to run faster. Simply by not having to travel the full 360 degrees. And this would have added an extra level of evolution, keeping it a step away from Revolution.
This toy has much stronger vibrations compared to the previous line of Revo toys. This was immediately obvious. And the vibrations on the Slim also feel significantly 'deeper'. Especially on the rotating head touching the prostate. Something easily confirmed by placing the tips against the cheeks of my mouth and comparing the vibrations with my tongue. Win!
But this also came at a price for me. Even sitting on a thick pillow on another cushion on my (wooden) chair, the vibrations went into the chair and into the floor, to my downstairs neighbors. It's not necessarily that the vibrations sound louder in the room, but they reach far deeper. I could feel the armrest vibrating under my fingertips. Anyway, this shouldn't be an issue in bed. Quite the opposite actually :)
The Slim has six vibration stimulation modes. Namely; slow, medium, fast, slow pulse, fast pulse and escalating.
Now I had high hopes that the Slim would have adopted more vibration patterns, like some other toys have nowadays. But I guess Nexus wanted to keep things more simple and it would take too long to go through all the options with the existing remote, something I will touch on next.
The remote is a nice bonus, especially with a partner in control or just being able to control it with your hands above your head, but it isn't super essential in solo play and you can completely control the unctions on the device itself just fine. The remote of the Slim is identical to the one paired with the Revo Stealth, so it does miss a dedicated button just for the new multi directional rotation functionality.
Further more, the remote on the Slim feels somewhat sluggish to use. There is a noticeable, maybe second and a half delay, before you can give a next command. So you can't quickly speed through the options just using the remote. It's worth noting though, that the action buttons on the Slim itself don't have mentioned delay. So if you know how many clicks it takes to get to your next desired setting, you'll be there in a jiffy.
The Nexus Slim takes a very minimum of three hours to fully charge from empty. But if it is shared on a the same hub with like a keyboard with LED lights, or something else drawing a fair amount of power, it can take considerably longer.(As with any toy. I just thought I'd mention it)
It uses the same charging connector as on the Nexus Sparta, and... The connector magnet simply isn't strong enough to be 100% reliable. It may rotate away from the contacts on the toy, or come loose from the device altogether. And you'll find it hadn't been charging just before you want to use it. Personally I use an elastic band to help keep it connected as a quick make-sure fix. It is worth noting though, that the Slim will last around three and a half hours on a full charge. So if you forget to charge it once, it will likely still be good to go as long as you can take it.
Anyway, no fooling around with batteries, which is awesome!
**Price & Alternatives:**
The Slim is quite expensive, like any 'high end' prostate toy sold in Europe and the US. And if it's simply over budget for a toy for you, then a previous Nexus model like the Revo 2 or Intense, or maybe even a vibration-less Nexus Sparta which I also own, are the next best thing. You really should experience either of them. Or quoting the words of 'multiple_o', the moderator of the subreddit u/prostateplay and the creator of 'A guide to multiple prostate orgasms', which convinced me to buy a Revo 2 (Stealth) back then.
"I love my Nexus Revo 2. It is one of my two essential toys and I constantly recommend it to everyone here!" and "It's a bit pricey, but I'd pay twice what I did knowing the experiences it's given me"
I think, now having tried them both, I can comfortably add the new Revo Slim to the recommendation unless more girth really matters to you.
So... Should I upgrade?
Tough one. You already know the Revo line of toys feel great. So if you can simply afford it and its stronger vibrations, slimmer shape, being waterproof, dual rotation direction, or its other added features catches your interest. I don't think you'll be disappointed. It's not a game changer compared, but it will absolutely look and feel like a natural evolution of the strong points in a product you already love. Again, unless you are a girth person. The Slim lives up to its name and just slides into place.
For me personally: The Slim is my new go-to toy.
